Fun Backyard BBQ Ideas to Enjoy Around Your Leisure Pool This Fall

Fall is here, and with it comes the delightful season of crispy leaves, warm color palettes and cozy gatherings. As the temperatures drop, the idea of gathering around the backyard grill while enjoying the beautiful view of your Leisure Pools’ fiberglass pool becomes a tempting proposition. And why not? Fall BBQs bring the best of both worlds to your backyard: the warmth of summer and the comforting vibes of autumn.

Creative Backyard BBQ Ideas to Make your Fall Poolside Gatherings Memorable

1.) Warm and Toasty Drinks: Apart from the traditional cold drinks and mocktails, introduce some fall-themed beverages. Think: hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick, spiced pumpkin lattes or a warm caramel hot chocolate. These drinks will keep your guests warm and lend a festive touch to the gathering.

2.) BBQ with a Fall Twist: Instead of the usual BBQ fare, consider adding fall flavors to the mix. Grilled acorn squash, roasted sweet potato skewers or marinated pork chops with apple chutney can be tantalizing additions to your BBQ spread.

 3.) S’mores Station: Set up a mini fire pit or a portable tabletop fire bowl and let guests make their own s’mores. Add a variety of chocolates, graham crackers and marshmallows. For a fall twist, provide pumpkin-flavored marshmallows or cinnamon graham crackers. Just employ your imagination.

4.) Cozy Seating: Lay out plush blankets, throws and soft pillows around the poolside seating area. The idea is to create a comfortable space where guests can snuggle up after a swim or while enjoying their meal.

5.) Pool Lighting: As the days get shorter, adequate lighting in and around the pool is essential for evening BBQs. String lights, lanterns or underwater LED pool lights can enhance the ambiance and make the pool look enchanting.

6.) Fall Decor: Decorate your poolside with fall-themed items like pumpkins, hay bales, corn stalks and lanterns. Not only does this set the mood, but it also makes for great photo ops! (And we’d love to see your social media photos. Go ahead and tag us – @leisurepoolsusa! We won’t mind.)

7.) Fun Pool Games: Who said pool games are only for summer? With your Leisure Pools’ fiberglass swimming pool, you can enjoy a quick dip even in the fall, especially if you have a heated pool. Organize pool games like floating pumpkin races or initiate some toss games with waterproof fall-themed toys.

 8.) Pumpkin Carving Station: Add an interactive element to your BBQ. Set up a pumpkin carving station where guests can carve or paint their own pumpkins. This not only serves as a fun activity but also doubles as a take-home party favor. You can also have a contest to see who carves the best pumpkin.

9.) Warm Up with a Fire Pit: If space allows, setting up a fire pit near the pool area can be an excellent way for guests to warm up and enjoy the fall evening. It becomes an additional space for guests to gather, chat, and even roast some marshmallows.

Don’t Forget the Poolside Music

Create your favorite Fall playlist. Compile a playlist with a mix of summer hits and mellow fall tunes. This blend will help reminisce about the summer past while welcoming the cozy vibes of fall. This creates the perfect ambiance for a poolside BBQ gathering. The blend of sizzling grills, laughter and familiar tunes makes for an unforgettable autumn experience. After all, gathering around your pool with family and friends is where memories are forged amidst the glow of golden leaves and the aroma of delicious food.

Fall offers a unique opportunity to blend the warmth and fun of summer BBQs with the comforting ambiance of autumn. And with your beautiful inground fiberglass pool from Leisure Pools as the centerpiece, you have the perfect setting for an unforgettable backyard gathering. So, light up that grill, set the table and experience a fantastic fall BBQ experience while you continue to enhance your well-deserved life of leisure!
